Match details

ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020
South Africa Women vs Thailand Women
Group B, 11th Match
Manuka Oval, Canberra
February 27, 2020, 15:00 (local) 


South Africa will look to make it two wins in a row when they take on an inexperienced Thailand side at Canberra in the 11th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup on Friday. The Proteas registered a commanding victory over England in their opening encounter of the tournament. The bowlers were superb in restricting England to 123 and the batting held its nerve to complete the chase with six wickets in hand.

Thailand, on the other hand, have been beaten in both their previous games against West Indies and England. While their bowling and fielding has shown fight, they haven't showed much firepower with the bat. But having dismissed West Indies and England’s top order cheaply, they’ll be hoping to make early inroads once again.

Weather conditions:

A bright and sunny day awaits us at Canberra on Friday with the temperature ranging in the mid-20s.

Pitch report:

The Manuka Oval has seen some big totals from England and Australia batting first in recent days. The track should remain good to bat on for the course of the match, so chasing is not a bad option either.

Probable playing XIs:

Thailand Women

Nattakan Chantam, Nattaya Boochatham, Nannapat Koncharoenkai (wk), Naruemol Chaiwai, Chanida Sutthiruang, Sornnarin Tippoch (c) Onnicha Kamchomphu, Wongpaka Liengprasert, Ratanaporn Padunglerd, Suleeporn Laomi, Soraya Lateh

Video Perfect Pairs 17 Feb 20
WT20WC: Perfect Pairs with Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp

Top picks:

Dane van Niekerk: The South African all-rounder highlighted her all-round value by picking up two wickets and scoring 46 runs in the previous match against England.

Marizanne Kapp: She played a big role with both bat and ball in the previous match as well. Kapp scored 38 runs and bowled an excellent spell of four overs, taking two wickets while conceding just 19 runs.

Ayabonga Khaka: The pacer was the pick of the South African bowlers in the last match. She registered bowling figures of 3/25 from her full quota of four overs and thus earned valuable fantasy points.
